Platform installation and usage
General platform configuration: cryptography¶
The type and parameters of the cryptographic algorithm used in the blockchain are set in the
crypto section of the node configuration file. The
crypto section is used to initialize the cryptography before reading the complete node configuration file.
type = WAVES
type– cryptography type; use the
WAVESvalue for Waves cryptography algorithms. If the
waves-cryptoparameter is present in the configuration file and is set to
yes, then the
typeparameter is assigned the
node.waves-crypto field with
no values is still supported, but it is not planned to use it in the platform future versions. Instead, the
type field in the
crypto section will be used.
